[Scratch Build] M2 - rEVOLV - Page 4

I'm still waiting for the mesh, will be modding my filters with it as the stock I have from Fractal are not up to my standards biggrin.gif
I did look at nylon meshes and other stuff, but this is the best I've found/was recommended to me on OCN as well. Finding a fine mesh with large open area is difficult.
Tons of stuff I can repurpose but no meshes, filters in my collection. Used to have 1 80mm filter that I dug out of a laser printer many many years like a decade ago or more before cases had any air filters at all biggrin.gif

Custom stuff is just a huge turn on. I'm in biggrin.gif

After ruining a set of aluminum plates, new plates arrived and finally got those corners right. Got help from a very good friend of mine, with a more robust bender than the one i had.

Even so, the bents were not possible without a grove on the inside of the bents.

This is the summary of what happened after a broken dremel and 6 hours straight of hand file:










Even though i still have to cut a bit more from these parts, and coat them, i was eager to see how it would look brushed:

Indeed, a good bender is pretty handy. the little cheap ones just don't compare, kinda miss the ones I had access to back in high school.

But just the thought of that filing is going to give me nightmares man, why didn't you use an angle grinder?

anyways back to our regularly scheduled programming... why are the plates you are bending so thick? did you use standard 6061-T6 aluminum or something more suitable for bending like 5052-0?

I try as much as i can to do things old school, the file felped me alot on keeping a straight line .. i used the dremel for an initial grove, the used the file to make a straight V grove for easy bending and short bending radius.. i felt more control with the file than the dremel (witch i actualy ended up burning it)

The thickness was something i really wanted, because it will be visible, if you take a look at the sketches you can see what i mean.. and i want it to look bad-serious biggrin.gif..

I actualy used 3k density sheets, but because i had the sheets cut prior to bending, the venting slits were a problem on bending, that groove was a must ..

The first set of sheets were 6k, and i failed to bend them .. frown.gif but i kept on going just for the experience ..




The only things that were successful with that set were the "feet" :





Oh and this is an ideea of how i want it to look like, but these are the ruined sheets, will get back to you guys with the successful ones when i get more time on my hands .. imagine it being vertical biggrin.gif

How do you do those short double bends in one direction?
